Happy Tuesday, my Friends! I hope you are well. I looked at the calendar this week, and was a little surprised Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK — where did the time go? Question for you — TO BRINE, or NOT TO BRINE?
My 2-Cent for this week is BRINE for a trouble-free roast turkey! I remember being filled with trepidation years ago when I was to roast the turkey for Thanksgiving for the first time ever in my life. I don’t know why, but that is not like me at all. But I picked up a Woman’s Day magazine at a grocery checkout line. In it was a recipe for a traditional roasted turkey, and it recommended brining. I followed the recipe exactly. The turkey was so well received my crew asked me to roast another one for the following weekend after Thanksgiving – and I did.
I also have a rule — we carve the turkey at the dinner table. I thought everyone at the table might as well appreciate my hard work in getting up at the crack of dawn and roasting the turkey! At the table, we fill the time waiting for the turkey by either singing Thanksgiving hymns, or answering trivia questions about Thanksgiving!
And THAT’s my 2-cents for this week. Now it’s your turn to share your 2-cents about your Thanksgiving meal preparations. I am also looking for new side dishes to add to my usual repertoire. Feel free to share your favorite side dish(es) for Thanksgiving.
